Contakids is a methodology based on the idea that using physical contact and play can help develop a deeper form of communication between parents and children: children can enhance their motor skills and self-confidence, while parents get to develop a bond of trust with their young.

ContaKids helps strengthen both parents and children, stimulates the development of healthy reflexes like balance and grip, encourages proprioception and self-confidence, helps parents take care of their own bodies when playing games with their children. Provides a relaxed environment to build a deeper physical connection between the parent and child.

30 CHF in advance.
We will send you details about payment method

10 pair of a parent and a child are available. Reservation will be completed once the payment is made.

‘The Inter-connective Web of Aiki’.

Come and learn and practice the non-confrontational art of ‘Being with’ instead of opposing, both on a physical, energetic and spiritual level. Go from a gross to a subtle engagement, go from the surface to the depth of experience. Become more sensitive and fuller in your expression.

70.00 CHF Swiss Franc for the day.

The day will be concluded with a Dan Grading after the scheduled time and then we’ll all go out for a meal in Montreux.

Visitors are able to be accommodated in the dojo. Please contact Aikido Montreux directly.
